This series started out as 2 mix CDs sets of DJs in different clubs around the world remixing songs of artists local to the area. It's been fairly popular since the artists are pretty damn good at spinning that trance, and it's a good look at music around the world. Recently, they've been growing beyond the Artist - Location series and showcasing less-known artists. As proj2501 mentions, calling them Underground is a cheap attempt to seem like they're not mainstream, but it's still good music. The various albums, artists and locations of the Global Underground (plus comments on the ones I've heard):
